Take It Slant

Tell all the Truth but tell it slant —

Success in Circuit lies

—Emily Dickinson

When we observe the world, we are usually standing or sitting upright, perpendicular to the horizon, our line of vision parallel  to the ground. Photography often follows suit: its default norm is a mid-space horizon  parallel to  the bottom of the photo. Our vestibular balance system encourages this  perspective. It has practical benefits, yet it limits our visual  appreciation of the world.

Take it Slant resists the dominance of this perpendicular  perspective by exploring alternative ways of seeing. In black and white, free  from the distractions of color, through landscapes and urbanscapes, organics  and inorganics, Take it Slant distills the power of diverse angles and forms to evoke our affective engagement with our visual environment.
